The bot pronounces o as "omicron" in the listening exercises.
Thank you. this is part of a test and we are reporting these errors.
So what is the correct pronounciation? Just o ti?
Yes, it is "OH- tee" the accent is on "O".
There are two very similar words but with different meanings.
''ότι" and "ό,τι" they are explained on this page.
The pronunciation is the same.
Jaye16, thank you for mentioning this. As another student mentioned above, the bot pronounces "omicron me tono" instead of Oh-tee"
We moderators have no jursitiction over the audio.
Duolingo has set up an Official link to report problems with the voice.
Please go there to report this.

Thanks for you help and understanding.
is that a typo? thanks!
No, it is not! Ότι means "that" and it's a conjunction but ό,τι means "anything", "whatever" and is a pronoun. Also ό,τι=οτιδήποτε, you can use them interchangeably, but the shorter form is more common.
The two options are like "whatever" and "whatsoever" in English. They mean the same thing, but the latter is very unusual.
I keep writing "My pappou eats whatever he likes" because this was indeed true of him :')
What is the reason why the comma is used?
To differentiate "ό,τι" from "ότι"=that.
Does it have to be used in normal writing, or is it just for the purpose of these lessons?
It's a legitimate rule, the difference between the two is important.
"ό,τι" being read as "όμικρον με τι"
I said "My grandfather eats what pleases him" and was marked wrong, going for a more literal translation.
what pleases him=ό,τι τον ευχαριστεί, not just του αρέσει.
